Linux HTTPD (apache).
Some experts are of the impression that access to files outside of the server root is not allowed by the (httpd) server. I have a number of PHP scripts that have no difficulty accessing a CSS file located outside of this server root through the HTML link tag and a symbolic link. The files render correctly except for the fact that I have a <BODY class="wp2"> in these scripts which doesn't render as expected, this "wp2" is defined in the CSS file and it works when used in another application.
Has anyone some experience and some hints in this respect?
Here are a few lines of code used in scripts and HTTPD
Document root in HTTPD is /home/meeting/chair
CSS file is /var/nobla/u1/h123.css
This HTML line is in every script <link rel=stylesheet type="text/css" href="h123.css">
This link is in every directory h123.css -> /var/nobla/u1/h123.css
The CSS file links class wp2 to /var/nobla/i1/wp2.png
Thank you for your help
